Well, there are samples coming from NYC, and some from Japan, so there may be some outlier sizes.

Stopped by totokaelo man today and checked out their Geller, I know some of you said you weren't super impressed with the buy but I really liked it. GellerxCP sneaks were especially great. The store in general I thought was very cool, probably one of the best in-store experiences I've had. Was disappointed they didn't have the current season zip blazer though, my dad really wants one (he steals mine when I'm at home haha)

Ended up w/ a pair of the flight pants in 48 (calves were too tight on the 46s.. damn runners legs), these things are gonna be perfect for the summer

Nice, Fok. That's awesome. Good job making that happen.

Hey Fok, are you able to give us any sense of which seasons the samples are from? I suspect mostly from last couple. I ask because there are a few things I'm interested in finding from this spring and fall. No worries if its premature and you can't say though.

Also bought a Richard blazer in 48, the sleeves end 2/3 of the way down my forearm...

I want to clarify this point, because when I first read this, I was like "No way, Robert Geller usually cuts his arms pretty long. I have a regular long reach, and the sleeves on his knit pieces often hit at or even just below the wrist.

So, I just got this from afixedpoint, and it's obvious that whoever had it before him had the parts professionally shortened, probably by about 2 inches, maybe to make it more like a "regular" blazer. Either that, or something wierd happened at the factory. For one thing, I compared it to my black one that I got from Maas&Stacks, and the finishing at the arms is different. On the black one, the arms have a single line of stitching, while this one has a (actually superior) surge stitch. I was a little surprised at first, but I sorta like it for spring - with the shortened arms, it has this gi/kimono effect that I find really interesting - I am not sure that any of you guys have ever read my ramblings, but one of my favorite silhouettes is that of the aikidoika:



So, right now I am wearing it with loose jeans, low tops, and some arm jewelry.

There are a few things (that I recognize) from FW12, and some earlier, like FW11, but I haven't really tried to date all the pieces.

Cheers,

Fok.

Fok, when are we looking at for things to begin? Any estimated date?

We are going to do this at the end of June or the beginning of July. The timing coincides with the anticipated finishing of our very elementary Styleforum Market store (I'm doing most of the work, so prepare to be underwhelmed - if it works out really well, I'll actually get someone who knows wtf they are doing to work on the design). Also, it allows us to avoid competing with the best part of the summer sales, but gets us in before FW starts to appear in stores. There are things for the summer (like shorts and light shirts), and things for the winter (outerwear, knits, etc...), so you guys will be able to get something to wear for the summer, and also start thinking about cool coats and jackets for winter (I'll be in that latter category.)

Hope that you guys are as stoked as I am.

I'm between a 48 and a 50, and I can tell you from experience that while his outerwear tends to run TTS or slim, his knits are generally oversized. Check out his shows - in many cases, the knitwear is worn over outerwear...

There are also belts made for the Japanese market, and these bolero/armor things, as well as tons of tees, besides what I've already mentioned.

You could probably afford to size down on some of the trenches and overcoat type stuff too.

Gimme all da little belts.
post #2445 of 5304

Kinda want the X-Wing Pilot orange flight pants.

Kinda.
